The HEC Montréal Executive Education Department has been watching market trends and listening to its clients’ requests and needs, and has introduced many new features this year.
First of all, various new online learning activities are now available in the form of webinars and an online seminar. Four one-hour webinars (each including a question and answer period) have been created since September, on different topics: exercising your e-leadership: best practices; day-to-day negotiating: reconciling your organizational and relational goals; developing your ability to change: be proactive; and managing your talent: tips for a successful career. These cutting-edge online training sessions give participants access to management content and best business practices, as well as the expertise of a HEC Montréal professional, wherever they are.
The seminar on political skills in organizations, already offered by the Executive Education Department, is now available online in one of three formats: with a knowledge transfer activity and online feedback; hybrid (half the courses in the classroom and the other half on the Web); and entirely online. Participants will learn how to become strategic, effective players who exert a positive and ethical influence on others in their organization.
The other new features in Executive Education include personalized training from the Montreal Structured Finance and Derivatives Institute, in which each participant is free to choose the modules that interest him or her from the 12 on offer. The Executive Education Department, in co-operation with the HEC Montréal Health Centre, has also added three highly targeted seminars on health and social services management, to meet the needs of managers in this field. A new activity is also planned with the Media Centre. Some fifteen new training activities have been added this year, in all spheres of management.
